Tuesday's card at Bordeaux Le Bouscat will open with a maiden for unraced three-year-olds (11.40am BST) and among the more interesting newcomers is Shaiban.

Shaiban is an Invincible Spirit half-brother to Dabirsim, who won on each of his five starts at two, including the Prix Morny and Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere.

The pair are out of the placed Royal Academy mare Rumored, who in turn is out of Oaks d'Italia winner and Moyglare Stud Stakes second Bright Generation. 

Rumored also has a two-year-old Camelot filly named Queen Iseult, and a yearling Frankel colt.

Freshman sire Dabirsim has already got off the mark at stud, as All This Time ran out a four-length winner of a 5½f maiden for unraced two-year-olds at Le Lion D'Angers in April.

The eight-year-old son of Hat Trick stood for two seasons at Gestut Karlshof in Germany before transferring to Haras de Grandcamp, where his fee has remained at €9,000.

Three debutantes that could put it up to the colt on debut are Lolif, Kilo Wren and Augmentor.

Owned by Gerard Augustin-Normand - who also campaigned last year's dual Classic heroine La Cressonniere - and trained by Christian Baillet, Lolif will be ridden by Olivier Peslier.

The Loup Breton filly is a half-sister to the three-time Listed winner Take To The Limit, out of the unraced Rahy mare Rahyna, who has also produced a two-year-old Elusive City colt and a yearling Makfi colt.

Kilo Wren is a Le Havre half-sister to the Italian Listed winner Sanjii Danon, out of the winning Grand Lodge mare Serpina.

Serpina has produced three other winners including the Osorio pair Lucio Silla and Serpettas Ode, and also has a two-year-old Kendargent filly named Last Minute.

Augmentor is a Rip Van Winkle daughter of the Orpen mare Lessing, who was third to Zarkava in the Group 3 Prix de la Grotte in 2008 and won the valuable Listed Prix Ronde de Nuit at Deauville.

Lessing has also produced The Commissioner, a son of Sea The Stars who finished a respectable third to Territories in the Prix de Fontainebleau, and a two-year-old Henrythenavigator filly named Lady Uejo.
